You might want to consider an Optima Red. I use this in my 85 Vette. It comes with an 84month warranty. GREAT BATTERY.... Bob

Being that its a pain in the neck to install: get the best warrantee [ 84 months ], and any good brand name . So you don't have to bother with it again.

My next C4 battery won't require fluid level checks.

I can safely say DON'T get an Exide !!
I had a long post a while back about it.
Let's just say that I saved 10 buck over another brand but in the long run it cost me $200 !

Exide used to be a supplier for Sears but I believe that relationship fizzled. Exide is still a supplier in some states for Wal-Mart ( Everstart). Exide also includes Champion, NASCAR XLT, Orbital, Stowaway and Trail Blazer.
If I understand correctly it is Johnson Controls that supplies the DieHard (Gold)? Optima is now a subsidiary of Johnson Controls. JC also makes Duralast, Interstate, ProStart, and Everstart (some) in a market also including AutoZone, Wal-Mart, and Costco.
